    i think the italian neorealism era of film is the only era that has the ability to make my jaw drop in such shock value that it makes me rethink my entire life.

    such a painful watch, and so beautifully scored.

    one of my only takeaways from this film is the fact that, if you ever, ever, want to cast anyone as immortal and then show them in the past AND the present (putting their supposed immortality on full display), you cast tony leung.

    absolutely NO choice is better than him.

    "How are you gonna be a revolutionary if you're such a traditionalist?"

    I know how mad you're going to get, but believe it or not, this was my first watch.

    I just want to say that Damien Chazelle is a freaking gem. The amount of effort that this guy and his entire crew put into the films they make should NEVER go unnoticed.

    I loved this a lot.

    "pretty as a picture."

    so good.

    the technicality of this film, the slow tracking shots, the clear Bergman influences done in their own unique way. it's insane how these alone make this film already so great. but of course, it's a robert eggers film, so there's MUCH more that adds to the greatness.

    ROBERT PATTINSON AND WILLEM DAFOE. incredible performances. the way they morphed into their roles and i could hardly recognize them because of how different these roles were…
